The pull of the moon and sun are the main cause of tides on Earth but 100 other scientific factors affect the timing and height of tides.
Tide prediction is getting better all the time, and official tidal predictions are available up to two years in advance.
There is roughly 12 hrs 25 minutes between each high tide.
